When first we see the studio space there is no electricity or water but it is a beautiful space nonetheless. It may have been a grain store or hay loft and the door has a sliding 'cat flap', probably to allow access to ratting terriers.

I found a butler's sink,
Built a painting table
and before long we were in business with the first paintings started.
